St. Thomas More Academy is a wonderful school! My children have excelled academically and grown spiritually while attending STMA. The small classes foster a unique learning environment which cannot be found any where else in this area. I highly recommend St. Thomas More.

My children love this school. It is a great value with affordable tuition, small classes, dedicated teachers, and an advanced curriculum in a wonderful Christian environment. As a parent I am able to be involved and have been able to get to know the teachers , staff, and other families very well.

This is an excellent classical Catholic School that strives to educate the heart, mind and soul of the students by nurturing them in small classroom settings with caring teachers and a Christ-centered education. My children thrive in this environment and many children that have transferred in have experienced dramatic positive turnarounds that are life changing. The tuition was just DECREASED for the 2012-2013 school year and the school is moving to an incredibly beautiful new campus just down the road from the current site. I recommend visiting the school and taking a tour with the principal Mrs. Lyburn to see for yourself why this school is such a blessing!
